La Grande Résidence at The Sutton Place Hotel

Great (4.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 8, 2003

We still can't quite understand this hotel. It seemed too good to be true when we booked it, and it turned out to be an even better deal than we could have wished for.

This is a pukka 4/5-star hotel (with doormen, a proper concierge etc.), and most of the guide books refer to its popularity with film stars etc. But we managed to book a "studio appartment" on one of the top floors (which are marketed separately as "La Grande Résidence") for just CAD109 per night (excl. taxes), which seemed a pretty good deal.

We wern't expecting that much (it seems that anything with a microwave qualifies as a "suite" at least). But what we got really was a complete one bedroom appartment, with separate bedroom, full kitchen (with fridge and freezer, proper cooker with hobs, oven and grill, dishwasher, double sink, loads of storage, worktops etc.), and reasonable-sized living room with dining area. Being on the 28th floor meant we also got a great view (not over a particularly interesting part of the city, but we did get to see sunrise over Lake Ontario).

Honestly, you could live in this place - and it seemed that some people on this floor actually did (all the rooms had letterboxes in the doors, and some had nameplates). The only drawback was that being right against the lift shaft there was an odd rumbling/wooshing noise ocasionally, but we stopped noticing this after an hour or so, and it was never audible from the bedroom.

Although the appartment floors are not supposed to be "full service", we still got daily chambermaid visits to attend to the bedding, change towels etc., and even clean our dirty crockery in the dishwasher.

Unbelievably good value for money at CAD109/night!

Unique Quality: Good location on Bay Street.
Short walk (2-3 mins) to metro.
Excellent service.
